Quilted Heart Strings
This item is a quilted wall hanging. Hearts are attached with a blanket stitch and have ribbon strings attached to each heart. There are loops at the top for hanging on a rod.
Approximate Time: 1 day
- cotton fabric
- quilting thread
Cut one piece of fabric for quilt front, approximately 25x26 inches.
For the backing of your choice, cut 26 1/2x27 1/2 inch piece of fabric.
- Cut out hearts from different scraps of heart themed fabric or anything of your choice.
- Attach hearts to front quilt fabric with a blanket stitch. I put mine in a circle with one in the middle.
- Next attach red ribbon so that they all come together in one place like you would balloons. These need to be tacked down about every 2 or 3 inches with a bar tack.
- Now you are ready to assemble the quilt. Lay out the back fabric with right side down.
- Next layer the batting over the back then sandwich it in with the top of the quilt.
- Hand quilt around each heart and a zig zag pattern to fill in on other areas of the quilt.
- Fold edges of the back of quilt over the front to make the edging and whip stitch it down.
- With the fabric from the back of the quilt cut a strip of fabric 2 1/2 inches wide and 12 inches long.
- With right sides folded together make a seam the length of the fabric. Turn and cut into 4- 3 inch sections. Serge each end of the 4 section. Fold in half and attach to top of the quilt evenly spaced.
